ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
By accessing or using the Website, or using any of the Website Services (as that term is described below), you are agreeing to these Terms and are concluding a legally binding contract with ReputationDefender LLC (the “Agreement”).
This Agreement defines the relationship between you and ReputationDefender. If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you also represent that you have the authority to bind such entity to these terms, in which case the terms “you”, “your” or “client” shall refer to such entity. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with these terms, you must not accept this Agreement and may not use this Website or the Website Services.
By using this Website or the Website Services, you represent and warrant that (a) all registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information; and (c) you are 13 years of age or older. Children under the age of 13 are prohibited from creating any accounts or purchasing or enrolling for any of the Website Services. Your information and profile may be deleted, and any Website Services may be terminated without warning, if we believe that you are less than 13 years of age. This website is intended for use by visitors outside of the European Union and European Economic Area. If you have accessed this site from within these areas, you are not permitted access and must leave the site at once.
ReputationDefender is operating this Website as part of a campaign advocating for legislation supporting the “right to be forgotten,” which, in general, would allow individuals to request that companies erase the data they collect about them, and would require companies to comply with such erasure requests where the business does not otherwise have an overriding legitimate reason for maintaining such data. The Website provides you with access to a variety of resources, which may include, among other things, communication forums and information, upload and download services, and registration forms (“Website Services”). We may, at our discretion, periodically change the description or content of the Website Services to reflect changes in the service terms, changes in regulatory requirements, and/or any other modification intended to improve the efficacy of the Website Services or better address a perceived need among our customers.

ARBITRATION, FORUM AND GOVERNING LAW
Any claim, dispute or controversy of whatever nature (“Claim”) arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted by and submitted to a single arbitrator (“Arbitrator”) selected from and administered by the San Francisco, California, office of JAMS in accordance with its then-existing Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures for matters where over $100,000 or injunctive relief is being claimed, and in accordance with its then-existing Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures for matters where less than $100,000 is being claimed. The arbitration hearing shall be held in San Francisco, California. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the state of California, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without reference to its conflict of law principles. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement. The Arbitrator shall be authorized to award compensatory damages, but shall NOT be authorized to award non-economic damages, such as for emotional distress, or pain and suffering or punitive damages. Each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees, cost and disbursements arising out of the arbitration, and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the Arbitrator and JAMS. Judgment on the award may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. By agreeing to this binding arbitration provision, the parties understand that they are waiving certain rights and protections which may otherwise be available if a Claim were determined by litigation in court, including, without limitation, the right to seek or obtain certain types of damages precluded by this arbitration provision, the right to a jury trial, certain rights of appeal, the right bring a claim as a class member in any purported class or representative proceeding; and a right to invoke formal rules of procedure and evidence.
